An Itch I Can't Scratch

I want a new car but I don't want to pay for it. I hate spending money. Actually, almost new or gently used would suit me fine, or a classic car would be great. I already have a beautiful classic MB 560 SEC but it isn't making my heart beat faster any more. I don't think I want to sell Carmela, I want something in addition to Carm. I saw an absolutely cherry MB 560 SEL in a parking lot the other day. I stopped and left a note on the car asking the owner to call me if they wanted to sell. It's been almost a week. I guess they want to keep that car. Bummer for me.

We need to haul our 76 Corvette out of the barn and sell her. It's a waste to let her sit there and deteriorate. Now that was a fun car to drive.

I want something different to drive and I don't know what. I'd love to find another car just like my first car, a 1959 Met, the first American compact car. I loved that car with it's little jump seats, the red and white wall tires and the darling wheel on the back. It makes me smile to think of it. I wish I still owned it.

Immidiately ship that Corvette to me, please, please, please! ;) It's my absolute favourite car. I'm saving to a Opel GT, the mini-Corvette, but it is quite expensive in Denmark - USD 12,500, ough! And that is for an old, used one which probably needs a lot of repair. But now I have saved almost a ninth.
lots of Danish e-hugs

Heh. At your age, you don't want your heart to beat faster. (snerk)

OTOH, see if you can find a Toyota MR-2. Similar to your Metro, but updated. Great fun to drive. I hated to let mine go.
